Help me find some old threads

Hi y'all,

I'm trying to find some old threads for reference. I'm looking for discussions on the issue of when content (characters, events, setting, facts, etc.) are established in the SIS/fiction. The answer is during play; this relates both to prep work and "secret" knowledge (ideas that are just in the player's head).

I remember this was discussed a few times, probably in the old theory and/or GNS boards, but I'm having trouble finding any threads through my own searching. I've tried a few searches using "prep","secret", & "SIS", but no luck. Maybe someone has a thread bookmarked, or maybe someone can suggest some terms for me to search? Links to discussions off-site would work, too.

Thanks!

I always love a search challenge. At first glance this looks promising. This may be useful also, but I didn't follow it as well in a quick read. In case those aren't helpful here's the search term I used via google:

s.i.s. facts established site:www.indie-rpgs.com
Theory from the Closet , A Netcast/Podcast about RPG theory and design.
